-raisers, his republican challenger mitt romney is getting ready to unveil his vision for foreign policy in a speech in lexington, virginia. here's a portion of his speech. it goes like this, they sent us excerpts earlier. general marshall once said he is going to say, the only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it. those words were true in his time and they still echo in ours. want to get to tara walsh, the senior communications adviser for the romney campaign. nice to see you. thanks for talking with us. >> hi, soledad. good morning. absolutely. >> so we know having read some of these excerpts that have been sent out by the campaign that governor romney's going to focus on israel, he's going to focus on the palestinian territories and no big surprise, he's going to focus on iran. why don't you spell out for me exactly what governor romney's position is when it comes to iran? >> well, listen, governor romney is going to clearly spell out the choice that there is this election, particularly when it comes to foreign policy and all of the unrest that is happening in the middle ea
it. >> it really gives you pause. >> anything the romney camp has done as it relates to foreign affairs is beyond a stumble, it's an embarrassment. >> domestic policy, you talk about stuff you don't know. you make an ass of yourself. in foreign policy you start a war. >> a familiar face with very wise words. let's get right to our panel. in washington pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" eugene robinson and michael o'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of new
the president for their third and final debate on the topic of foreign policy. earlier today mr. romney visited the ji military institute to deliver what his campaign described as a major address on foreign policy and to try out some new fear-flavored zingers focused on the middle east. >> it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. >> but even after today's tenth major foreign policy address by mr. romney, questions remain about how he would conduct american policy toward the rest of the world. how about libya? >> in the libya i'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them, and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> okay. now that he's both favored and deposed intervention in libya, he'll defiantly claim his position is exactly the same as the president. great. how about ir
presidential candidate, mitt romney. he is scheduled to give a recall of a major address on foreign policy. we'll have that for you when it gets underway. it is scheduled for 11:20 eastern and we will have that for you on c-span. right now, a preview of the speech from this morning's "washington journal." host: we want to talk a little bit about this speech today. thank you for joining us. what does mitt romney have to do in this speech? what sort of expectations are built up? guest: this will be romney's foreign-policy speech. it is clearly pretty late in the game for him to be delivering a speech like this. early voting has started in the number of states. he wants to continue some of the momentum he built up last week's debate. it's a chance for him to make a clear contrast between himself and the president. more importantly, it's another chance for his campaign to show that there is more of a choice between him and obama and less of a referendum. when romney pick his running mate this summer, there was a sense that this would be a chance for him to outline things for his own and have a pol
are popular somewhere. romney has distinction in foreign policy, it's this. remember who you are dealing with. obama is like me. he preferred to be cool rather than rule. he took exception to exceptionalism. what romney is saying is we're going back to the way we were. we have don't care if you don't like us. we'd rath ber respected and feared than be part of anti-bullying campaign. >> kimberly: bob, you seem enthralled. otherwise inspired. >> bob: inspired the word. dana is right. this would have been lost if not for the timing of it. not a bad delivery. this is where romney fell short. he says. he does not call for a cutoff date at all. he wants condition. a lot of people on the right want to cut off aid altogether. >> eric: wait. >> bob: por done me? >> eric: if conditions aren't met, then what? >> bob: i don't know what that means. >> bob: if i could finish. >> eric: again, bob -- finish. okay. >> bob: he said that we should begin to supply our friends in syria, syrian revolt. which would be fine especially our closest allies like turkey don't know who the friends are and not supplying ai
of romney and saying we won't be lectured by someone who's been an inmitigated disaster on foreign policy every time he dipped his toe in the foreign policy area. that's coming from jen psaki. a zinger there. recent polls show that romney closing the gap. should it be a wake-up call for the president, the campaign that mitt romney thinks that the fight over foreign policy is one he's willing to take on? >> you know, i think we'll have to wait and see what governor romney says before we determine that. foreign policy, there's a lot to say that sounds great in rhetoric and platitudes and hearing plenty of governor romney and really about the approach and the policy and just in the previews i have heard a lot of the rhetoric is a little bit different but the underlying policies are very similar. i mean, the kinds of things i think the governor will recommend sound like things that are already happening and continuously hearing governor talk he doesn't seem to understand or speak to, you know, with china. it is not just currency manipulation and trade to worry about or deal with china on. it'
. mitt romney out of nowhere it seems, major address today on american foreign policy. take a listen. >> the president is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding. i want to believe him as much as anyone else. when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead, likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it is clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> so we'll hit the speech in depth here a lot on the middle east. but first, let me give you the big picture. as we mentioned, four weeks until the election, and we are seeing a possible shift in favor of mitt romney. check this out. this is what has happened since that debate last wednesday. this is gallup's daily tracking poll. a dead heat here when you look at the different numbers, a dead heat for the race for president, down from the five-point advantage for the pres
mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a lot of anti-american attitudes out there. he senses there is a moment now for him to take advantage and as you point out, brooke, he's going to have t
of the critiques of mitt romney and his ability to create space on foreign policy it's been one of barack obama's great strengths. his margins in terms of who you handle more for international i affairs remains stronger than on the economy and other matters. the other critique is that mitt romney is saying i would do things differently, but there isn't a huge spelling out of how he would do things differently. you mentioned iran. going forward he had a detailed critique of how to handle it forward. that's the trouble trying to define stark lines. that's why he went philosophical to say i would be tougher. we have a duty as america to lead. he mentioned syria. we need to step in and support demonstrators and those things. we'll see. he clearly has an intention, an opening against obama. >> chris, while carrying a bigger stick on foreign policy he's also on the campaign trail being kinder and gentler himself in unveiling what they didn't do at the convention other than through surrogates. he's been giving speeches now three in a row where he gives example of his ministry, his mormon ministry and
at mitt romney's foreign policy speech yesterday and the role that issue is playing in the presidential election from today's "washington journal.". >> host: editor-in-chief at foreign policy. thanks for coming in this morning. >> guest: thanks for having me. >> host: mitt romney made his foreign policy speech yesterday. did you hear anything new? >> guest: this was an important speech for mitt romney. i think the third important foreign policy speech he made of the campaign. people are paying a lot more attention now that we're in days and weeks of the election. so i think it was an important moment for him. really what he is trying to do is what challengers are always trying to do when it comes to foreign policy. he is not outlining how he would run the country, how he would project american power in the world so much as continuing to draw contrasts with barack obama. i'm reminded of that old line. campaigns are all about accentuating small differences and emphasizing the heck out of them. i think that is little bit what we saw yesterday. . . and of course there's the classic republic

is the slow, painful death of syria. >> aiding the rebels in syria was one of many issues which mitt romney touchdown during a foreign policy speech in virginia today. charging the obama administration is sitting on the sidelines, he did not offer specifics, but laid out this policy. >> in syria, i will work with our partners to organize those members of the opposition who share our values. they obtained the arms they need to defeat the tanks and helicopters and fighter jets. >> mitt romney in virginia today. for more on what he had to say and how foreign policy is playing his campaign, i am joined by our foreign policy correspondent. thank you for coming in. how would president romney differ from president obama? >> i cannot tell how it would differ. he does say that he would go so far as to arm some of the rebels through our partners. the way the paragraph is carefully constructed come a gives the impression that he would arm the rebels. if you read it, it says it through our allies. that is what we are doing. that is what we're doing to begin with. not very different. >> you were just in
the president is, and that's been sort of part of the romney pitch so far on foreign policy toward iran. this is tricky, bill, because when you do that you have a war wary nation. we've been through the adventure in iraq which people grew very tired of and has been brought to a conclusion, how good of a conclusion remains to be seen. we've got the situation in afghanistan, which is either bad or not so bad depending on who you're listen to, but which has also been going on for a longtime and the president wants to get us out of here. americans are suspicious of foreign adventures. every time you talk about using force the word war comes to mind and people don't like wars you have to be very careful doing that. and romney has a fine line to walk. bill: he is going to say, i. the hopes for a safer middle east allied with the united taeuts, i share this hope but hope is not a strategy. couple that now with what he has said on the trail for a month. go out and find somebody who voted for the president four years ago and try to change their mind. with that now we have this ad ad that is airi
as declared by iranian agents to assassinate our -- >> we're talking about mitt romney's big foreign policy speech. i want to bring in holla to talk about it. one thing is this idea of avoid aing nuclear iran. from what i can tell and from what a lot of people say, it looks like the sanctions aren't working and it looks like diplomatic efforts aren't working either. how are people respond sng. >> well, it's just really a question of making a difference between what mitt romney is proposing, the approach toward iran versus barack obama, the tightening of sanctions. when you say there hasn't been an impact, perhaps not in terms of the development of nuclear capability or nuclear energy or nuclear products, but you did see that currency crisis over the last few weeks in iran that experts say was a result of that economic squeeze applied on the country because of these sanctions. this is a big problem for the leadership on the executive level in iran, but also as far as the clerical leadership is concerned. they have to address the frustrations of their citizens, who seem to value their currenc
